    With products with a set shelf life, I am always concerned that I will receive the items that were manufactured years ago. NOT this item. It was packaged and sealed on Jan 31 2013 with a shelf life as stated...the full 20 years providing it is stored as required.

  • Emergency Pail Food

    This is the first time I ever tried buying large quantities of survival food. The taste is not as good as buying individual dry soup mixes, but comes in much larger quantities for less money, and the soups can easily be better tasting with a few added spices. The only package that is resealable is the oatmeal, so storage containers are needed for any unused portions.

    • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? spot on
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? very accurate
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. good
  • compact piece of mind

    grab a few and put them away, one note is it takes 18 gallons of water to re-hydrate the entire bucket, just stock up enough water so you dont fall short

    • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? same
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? same as on label
  • Hard to review this

    First off. Most people don't open this and use it, as it is for emergencies. So you won't find as many revies as there should be. With that said, I haven't used it, but i have researched it. This is the best bang for the buck. $10 cheaper than wise and you get so much more. This is emergency food with a potential shelf life of 20ish years. I hope to never taste it!! Shipping was very fast and everything came well packed. Close to 2k calories a day. Most others are far less than that. I am sure if your a guy like me(6'3", 240LBS) you will need every bit of 2000 cals. Mostly meatless and "soupish". I am giving this 5 stars for amount of food and calories.

    • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The buckets looked the same
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? accurate
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Don't know
  • Great value / Packed with food

    This bucket make the Wise buckets look small. It is packed with food. Great value!

  • Just what we needed

    I was looking for an emergency food supply for a go bag and this was perfect. Large enough to take care of my family for a week plus, but compact enough to fit in a cabinet.

  • Good long term storage if you get the right price

    I was able to get this 30-Day Pail for $** shipped. It's not always that price, but when you can get it for that price, I believe it is a good deal. The pail is well sealed and very heavy. I have not tried the food, because I'm storing it for emergencies. I especially appreciate the label giving the calorie count. Many food storage companies just list a number of servings without mention of the calories. They can play a lot of games with the serving size if they don't publish the calorie counts. Augason Farms was very open with these details. I am happy with my purchase, and Overstock shipped it very quickly. Since this is overstock, I was a bit worried that the food may have been sitting around for a long time, and it wouldn't have much of the 25 year shelf life left. The date on the bucket was 2013, so it was only 2 years old when it was delivered. Let's hope it has been stored in a temperature controlled building for those 2 years. There's no way to know for sure.

    a great gift for people in need.

When I received my pails, each pail has noticeable dents. Is this because air is removed from inside the pail, collapsing the sides? fearless_leader31 on Oct 6, 2014

Answer This Question

Hello fearless_leader31, per our contact with the manufacturer, this occurs because all the air has been removed, and when it changes elevation, it sucks in even more, due to the pressure change. I hope this information is helpful. Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 14, 2014

Answer This Question

I havent opened mine, but I believe they are all in their seperate bags that are resealable. Also, just for consideration, I contacted Augason Farms and asked how much water is needed for each bucket in order to cook everything. The answer is 18 gallons of water will be needed. joedirt237 on Mar 11, 2013

Yes, I understand that the expiration is on the bottom of the can. However, *before* I purchase the can, can you tell me what an average expiration date is? I don't want to purchase something that expires in 5 years because it's already been setting for 15. I want to purchase something that expires in 20 years. So, what is the expiration date on the products if I were to purchase them today? avrilvan on Dec 5, 2012

Unfortunately we do not know if the food in this pail contains MSG. However, we will research this matter and get back to you. overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 30, 2012
I encourage you to look into hydrolyzed yeast extract. Also autolyzed/hydrolyzed vegetable protein. These are found in every bucket of food produced by any and every company that makes these dried food bucket/pails. These things have the same affect as MSG. The name is different, but your brain won't tell the difference. Your neurotransmitter glutamine (the 'g' in MSG) goes into overdrive when you consume food that has MSG added to it, and also hydrolyzed yeast extract and autolyzed vegetable protein. The reason these things are added to our food is so that our brain will send the signal (glutamine) to other parts of our brain telling us that it tastes good. SO, while there is no ADDED MSG. There ARE other things added that have the exact same affect :/ This is true for every kind of survival food that I've researched. It most likely isn't that big of a deal, unless you're older and are starting to get migraines from MSG, or if you hope to live off this survival food everyday for several months. Then I might be concerned... mendedarrow on Dec 24, 2012
